Getting to UIC:
The conference will be held in the UIC Math Department, which is located in the Science and Engineering offices building (SEO, 851 S Morgan St, Chicago, IL 60607).

By car: UIC is easily accessible by car, and is located just off of either the 90/94 or 290 interstates. If you are coming into UIC, it's best to park at the Halsted Parking Structure at the NE corner of the Taylor and Halsted intersection.

By train/bus: UIC is also close to Chicago's Union Station with convenient Amtrak trains / Megabus routes to many locations in the region. A cab to UIC from Union Station should cost under $10. The Greyhound station is also very close by, and an easy walk to UIC.

By air: Chicago has two major airports, O'Hare (ORD) and Midway (MDW), and it is easy to get to UIC from either one (many travel sites will let you look for both simultaneously using the airport code CHI).

If you are flying into O'Hare, you can take a Blue Line train (costing $5) into the city (towards the loop or Forest Park) which stops right next to the UIC campus (at the UIC/Halsted station). For reference, a taxi from O'Hare to downtown will cost around $45 before tip (and can be paid with a credit card). During many times of day, the train is much faster than driving.

If you are flying into Midway, you can take an Orange Line train (costing $2.50) into the city (towards the loop), which will allow you to transfer to the Blue Line (at the Harold Washington Library station) which stops right next to the UIC campus (at the UIC/Halsted station). Another good option is to take the Orange Line into the loop (e.g. Harold Washington Library station) and then take a short cab ride to UIC (at most $10). For reference, a taxi from Midway to downtown will cost around $25 before tip (and can be paid with credit card).


Hotel: Rooms for speakers and funded participants will be reserved at the Crowne Plaza Chicago Metro hotel, which is withing walking distance of UIC. Rooms will be paid for directly by the UIC math department.



Parking: Parking at UIC is the preferable option if you are driving. There is a UIC garage a 5 minute walk from the the Math building with reasonable rates (corner of Taylor and Halsted). Parking at the hotel is quite expensive (usually 40-50 dollars per day).
